Saving Light Bulbs is a family business, with many years of experience in eCommerce and Chandelier lighting. Saving Light Bulbs operate primarily on-line so we can reach a wide geography of customers and keep our overheads to a minimum in order to pass on excellent value to our customers.
Saving Light Bulbs specialises in supplying full range of energy saving LED lamps and lighting. These include a spectrum of interior lights including:
- LED GU10s
- LED panels
- LED tubes
- LED PL lamps
- LED ceiling lights
- LED cabinet lighting
We also supply exterior LED flood lights, LED hi-bay lighting for factories, LED strips both single colour and RGB/RGBW along with associated drivers and control systems.
Our team also specialise in lighting control systems especially Rako. We can advise you on the choice of a particular energy efficient bulb for a specific application or we are glad to put together a proposal for your house or premises taking into account your specific needs and budget.
Know More About Energy Saving Light Bulb Technologies:
Incandescent Bulbs - Invented by Thomas Edison, the light bulb literally started illuminating people's lives in 1879 with the flick of a switch. It has remained largely unchanged until recent times with the introduction of new technologies namely the halogen bulb, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) and energy efficient LED bulbs. Lighting has become far more sophisticated with the range of control systems that are now available, giving the ability to make a more significant contribution to the overall effect of your interior design layout.
History of Halogen Bulbs:
Halogen bulbs were first launched onto the market by GE in 1958. Light is produced through the combination of tungsten filament and the iodine of bromide elements. Halogen produces a very clear, bright and white light which the automobile industry has taken full advantage of as they use halogens extensively. The technology has advanced more recently to allow the creation of commercial lights for high voltage mains electricity for use in homes and commercial buildings, saving approximately 30%.
History of CFL Lights
Energy Saving CFL Light bulbs became essential to lighting homes and commercial buildings, which they have been doing for over 100 years. Technological advancement and environment pressure spurred the introduction of energy saving lights. First produced in fluorescent tubes, the technology has been developed to ensure it is suitable for a range of different uses and purposes. CFL became the first energy saving technology, and it has been advanced to ensure the bulbs are flicker free and reach a good level of brightness which wasn't the case when they were first in production and use. Their appearance has also improved and their size has become more appropriate.
History of LED Bulbs:
The most recent lighting technology is LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) which was introduced in 1962. They were only low intensity red lights in their earliest form, but have advanced with technology and can now emit light colours across the visible spectrum. They are becoming brighter as technology advances and represent the energy saving light bulb technology of the future.
The LED bulb uses Light-Emitting-Diode technology which has advanced in leaps and bounds in recent times and these energy saving bulbs come on instantly and do not suffer from reduced life span with repeated switching. The halogen bulb will save 30% in electricity, the CFL around 80% and the LED typically about 90% when compared to the traditional light bulbss. The other technologies and metal halide and sodium discharge lamps but one thing of for sure, that over the next decade the energy saving LED bulb will take over as the preferred technology.
Average saving in energy cost for operating LED Bulbs
There are a number of different ways to calculate the savings that you will realise from moving to energy efficient LED bulbs. The savings accrue partly because they only use a fraction of the electricity of a conventional light bulb but also because they last much longer typically 30-50000 hours which is over 30 times the lifespan of a conventional light bulb. If you calculate the savings that would be made over the lifetime of the LED bulb you will generally save over EUR 100 for every LED bulb which is fitted to replace a conventional or halogen light bulb.
